Arsenal fullback Tierney: Odegaard big influence on Real Sociedad decision

Arsenal fullback Kieran Tierney admits he feels Real Sociedad suits him.

Tierney has joined La Real on a season-long loan.

He told The Sun: “From the moment I heard they were interested I started doing research on the club and city. I was straight on Google. Real Sociedad very quickly became my first choice.

“My Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard, who has played for the club, was able to tell me everything about the club and the city. He thinks it’s a great move for me. Martin’s been a massive help.

“I had different options but told my agent that my heart was set on Real Sociedad and from the first moment I arrived I knew it was 100 per cent for me. Everyone’s made me feel wanted.

“There’s a few Spanish coaches at Arsenal and they all said that personally and professionally I’d love it at Real Sociedad. They felt it was a great moment to go there. The manager, coaches, staff and team-mates couldn’t have done any more for me before Saturday.

“It’s not an easy thing to go to a new country and have a few days to adapt before making your debut, especially when you haven’t played for so long.

“A lot of credit must go to the people at the club. I felt I did well, but there’s so much more to come from me. I played with a smile on my face and I’ve been doing that in training too.”
